The best tool to design printed circuit boards.
Generally, the majority of electrical devices are formed by a mechanical part and an electrical
part. This electrical part consists in printed circuit boards
, where the different components are connected by means of copper pathways on a board made of insulating material.
The first step to obtain one of these printed circuit boards
) is to design it using one of the specific tools that exist on the market. One of the most popular ones is OrCAD
is the most powerful and intuitive tool to design printed circuit boards. The demo version offers you the possibility to evaluate the following functions: OrCAD Capture
, OrCAD Capture CIS Option
, PSpice A/D
, PSpice A/A
, OrCAD PCB Editor
The basic steps that have to be taken to design
a printed circuit board with OrCAD
. Design the circuit by creating the schematic in the "Capture
. Generate the circuits netlist
. Import the netlist to "LayoutPlus
. Place the components and trace the pathways
. Generate the files of its design.
Once the design of the copper pathways over the board has been finished, and we have simulated the behavior of the design, the next step will be to design the PCB from an insulating material
, like for example a photosensitive fiberglass board.
to carry out the process of design of the printed circuit board.
